Interested in Arts Award? Are you an adviser? Take timeout to watch our peer mentoring film here

If you are new to Arts Award we hope it will help support your thinking around the development of your Arts Award offer. The film does not replace adviser training and any Arts Award project should always be planned with a toolkit and the Arts Award website

The Arts Award Peer Mentoring programme took place in 2015-16 and was led by The Learning and Participation Team at The Customs House, South Shields as part of their role as strategic leads for Arts Award on behalf of Culture Bridge North East. Peer mentoring aimed to help cultural organisations embed Arts Award in their programmes for children and young people. This film is captures conversations between mentors and mentees around Arts Award helping to deepen understanding of Arts Award.

Advisers from The Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art Sunderland, Sunderland Music Hub, Washington Arts Centre, Norther Print Newcastle, Woodhorn Museum and Northumberland Archives , Live Theatre Newcastle, Northumberland National Park and Arc Stockton were partnered with more experienced Arts Award Advisers.

Mentors Ree Collins, David Wilkinson, Susan Cairns and Helen Ferguson helped participants see how what their organisations existing offer fits with the Arts Award framework.

Thank you to all who took part. We hope you enjoy the film.
